The entire incident was captured on tape.

The boys, both White, used racial slurs and even held a lit lighter up to Cequan’s skin.  Cequan, who is special needs, can be heard screaming, “STOP, STOP, STOP” during the ordeal. But no one ever came to the his aid.

Not even the bus driver. In fact, she is heard giving approval of the teenagers’ savage behavior.

“Ugh, anything to get him quiet! I’ve got to drive this bus,” Davis can be heard saying. The boys are all students in the Appomattox County Public School System.

Cequan’s mother, Roxanne Hoskins, said she was very disappointed with the conduct of all involved:

“My son, he was a special needs child and he didn’t deserve this. He was entitled to a safe transportation just like any other child in the Appomattox County Public School System,” said Roxanne Haskins, Cequan’s mother.
But she says instead, her son was left with physical and emotional scars. Since the incident he’s received hours of therapy and been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder.
“I wanted parents to be aware, that when I speak out, I’m speaking out for all kids. But unfortunately, this did happen to my child, and I want parents to be aware of what’s going on in the school system,” she said.

The bus driver, Nancy Davis, was charged with child neglect as a result of the video, but was acquitted of all charges.

The two bullies were found guilty of disorderly conduct and assault and battery in 2011. The mother is awaiting a trial date in her civil case against the Appomattox County School Board.
